More than 100,000 JPS customers to receive compensation for breaches

Elizabeth Bennett Marsh, Public Education Specialist at the OUR
The Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) says more than 100,000 Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) customers will receive payments under the compensation plan announced on Thursday for breaches of guaranteed standards.
The breaches were committed by the JPS during the period from March 2020 to September this year.
The utility company is mandated to pay $220.9 million to affected customers.
Elizabeth Bennett Marsh, Public Education Specialist at the OUR, said JPS will be paying the compensation in installments to affected customers for the 19-month period.  
"So the payment period will go from November to April next year - that six month period - and for each of those months, they'll be making blocks of three-month payments to affected customers, I think except in the last month in April, it would be a four-month [payment]," she revealed. 
She was speaking Friday on the Morning Agenda on Power 106.
